22-year-old model Riley Montana quickly found her way in to the spotlight thanks to Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci. Just two weeks after Riley moved to New York City to seriously pursue her career as a model, Tisci took a chance on the unknown face by casting her in the new Givenchy campaign. Tisci has a track record for launching new faces and is known to select a diverse range of models for his campaigns. Riley commented that she "cried and fell on the floor" after landing the major job: ''Riccardo [Tisci] took a chance on me. I was brand new. He supports diversity and I love that about him. He doesn't care about what people think.'' 

Riley adds that although some African-American models might see the few slots on the catwalk as competition between them, she tries to approach it more positively and says that casting is done by people whose mind they can't change, so there is no way they can control that and models instead need to support each other: ''There aren't a lot of African-American girls at each show, so it probably is a little competitive - 45 looks and there aren't that many black girls. But I don't like to look at it as competition. At the end of the day, we don't make the decision. I do my part, you do your part. They're gonna pick who they want, regardless. Some girls probably do look at it as competition, but I think you have to support one another because at the end of the day, it's hard for all of us. ''
